The Knights of Columbus is the largest Catholic men’s organization in the world. A Knights of Columbus council in a Parish exists for the purpose of assisting the Parish organization in its work, and with the purpose of serving, promoting, supporting the objectives of the Church to enhance or add to the existing and future successes of the Church at the Parish level.
Council #7473, a combination of St. Elizabeth Seton and Holy Spirit Parishes, welcomes men of the parish who are practicing Catholics, age 18 and over, and join with their brothers worldwide in promoting fraternal activities.
Knights and their families celebrate the Eucharist as a group one Sunday a month.
Knights engage in fund raising activities to support various causes such as:
- Gibault School
- Parish St. Vincent de Paul Society
- Annual Tootsie Roll Drive for the Developmentally Disabled
- Respect Life
Knights sponsor parish pancake breakfasts throughout the year. Knights sponsor various
activities for the youth of the parish and members’ children.
Members are expected to work on programs sponsored by the Knights of Columbus and encouraged to attend social functions. Membership dues are $25/year. Meetings are held on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of each month.
